  1. I have been planning on doing a trip to LO before now but the action seemed slow. From the guys I have spoken to from Henderson to Oswego it seems like the action is picking up a bit from what it has been. I am considering making my first trip of the season Thursday-Monday of this week.
  2. A buddy of mine from Maine is fishing out of Oswego this week. Yesterday he landed two kings 22 and 14. Today he landed this 26 lb. He seems to be getting them on different baits nothing specific. He is only running 3 rods out of his 16’ boat. Not bad for only being his third trip on the big water
  3. Thanks, unforchantly it is showing code 84438 Tiger pink but it does not offer that color in anything.
  4. Seems like they should put as much effort in bilge water from shipping vessels entering the Great Lakes
  5. I looked around on the web but I could not find any lure stickers in watermelon. I have a bunch of lures that have not been producing so I would like to change them like the ones in these two pictures. Any idea where I can buy some?
  6. Super, maybe others do use smelt in their meat rigs I have just never read about it or herd of it. As you may or may not know sewn smelt is the best option here in New England for big Atlantics, brookies and lakers. Seems like a great option for the meat rigs
  7. Basically any hull/top modifications can be built using fiberglass. I live in Downeast Maine. I visit boat shops weekly that build/modify boats. If you wanted to get this done by a professional just PM me these guys can do about anything and it will be done right. To give you a idea. These guys often will take a boat thats 35-55' cut it length wise and lengthen it as well as widen it. Sounds easy but there is a lot of science that goes into those kinds on hull modifications to get the boat to sail efficiently. So to modify or build a custom top is a cake walk.
  8. I see most if not all guys are using west coast herring for their meat rigs. With a great population on smelt in Lake O why not dip smelt in the spring and use those for the meat rigs? Seems like a more natural scent and presentation.
  9. Unreal fish. Thanks for sharing.
  10. I don't think any of this matters. Fish don't see colors and light the way we do.
  11. NOAA is one of the most corrupt government organizations period. They lie cheat and steal and are never held accountable for their corruption. In 2010 they lost $14,000,000 of fine money collected from fines assessed to fishermen. After a brief investigation it was found that there has not been one case of a fisherman beating a case in court, not one. How can that be? And they did find some of the $14,000,000 spent on a luxury yacht as well as European family vacations for employees. Call and commercial or recreational fisherman on the East or West coast and ask them about NOAA
  12. Lol, some of you Libtards are pathetic. You have the Clintons murdering people as well as your great governor and Cuomo responsible for directly killing 45,000 and your concerned about some ducks .Ignorance at its best
  13. I agree. I have owned boats all of my life and used them mostly in salt water. I will say after the first time exposed to salt water most if not all fasteners will be much more difficult to remove. It the boat was left at a marina or on a moring for extended periods on time the corrosion will be noticeable.
  14. I said keep your bull **** opinions to yourself! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Keep your negative remarks to your self. If you cant keep on topic move on....
  16. With a governor like NY has I think you have alot more to worry about.
  17. I do. That was why I asked. If you have a issue move on
  18. I have not seen the Saiff Charter fleet post any updates since May 16th. Is fishing that slow?
  19. What ranch? I hunt the Flying 5B
  20. Thank you very much. I had over looked all of the above suggestions. I may bring my wife and both of us would enjoy seeing the falls. Also, walleye is a species that is on my list. Being from Maine I have never seen one. I have made up my mind, if I go to LO in two weeks I will try the Bar.
  21. Good to know. If I am going to drive 12 hrs i may as well go further. How far should I consider? Thanks
  22. I was wanting to make my first trip to Lake O before now but from all reports I have received the fishing has been off so far this season. I am planning of a 3 day trip the end of the month somewhere from Sodas to Henderson. I have a 20' Duckworth I will bring from Maine. So is there any indication the fishing will improve or is that the million dollar question? I spoke to a charter captain two days ago that said its the worst year for browns he has ever seen. It seems odd to me considering the lack of fishing pressure the south shore got last spring due to Covid restrictions. Seems like the fish that did not get caught last spring would have made for a better then normal spring this year. So where would be the best area for me to consider starting in 10 days from now? Thanks
